Being too young to attend, I had to sneak in, and stay in the shadows for the first several shows, which were actually college dances.
Beginning with Ike and Tina in 1963 or 1964. The Fabulous Flippers came a couple of times, The Continentals, other bands, some known, some not.
After graduating HS the first show I bought a ticket for was in the summer of '65. Paul Revere and The Raiders followed by Peter, Paul, and Mary in the fall. Then came The Thingies that winter with the first strobe light I'd ever seen. Needless to say, they became a favorite.
